You may have noticed some posts from our friends at the Strategist on the Cut. They’ll be dropping in every now and again, sharing their expertise on the basics you don’t have time to research and the weird and wonderful things you don’t yet know you need.
In our end-of-week sales-bin sweep we were happy to find so many of our favorite retailers — including Anthropologie, J.Crew, and Madewell — offering sales on sale, which means they’re slashing prices on their already discounted merchandise . This — along with the still-strong Nordstrom’s Anniversary Sale and the final days of Everlane’s Summer Sale — means there’s lots of shopping to do. Before you get too excited, most of the deals below are final sale, so make sure you shop carefully.
Everlane’s Summer Sale ends this weekend, so it’s the last chance to take up to 50 percent off hundreds of styles including this gingham midi dress that our newsletter editor (and resident Everlaneologist) says was ideal for a summer vacation to Portugal.
And when the weather finally cools down you’ll be glad you snagged these high-waisted jeans while they were 50 percent off.
Pair them with this slightly oversize button down, and you have yourself another return-to-office look.
There are plenty of men’s styles on sale too, including these perfect-length shorts that are also on sale in pewter green.
Strategist editor Maxine Builder says her eno hammock “was, hands down, my favorite purchase of 2021 — and you can catch me in McCarren Park on a hot day, swinging in it.” She adds that, “It’s surprisingly sturdy and comfortable, even though it’s just a giant sheet of nylon that’s been strung up between two trees.” We found the even lighter-weight version of it on sale at REI. And despite being only 5.8 ounces, it still holds up to 300 pounds.
We’ve been diligently tracking Nordstrom’s Anniversary Sale and collecting all the best discounts in a separate post, where you’ll find deals like this. The cult-favorite Natori Feathers bra, a Strategist-reader favorite, is nearly 35 percent off.
If you lost your suitcase in the airport over the 4th of July, now’s a good time to pick up a sturdy new Tumi carry-on.
And for a chic airport look, these ribbed ankle pants look comfy enough to wear while waiting in long TSA lines and to curl up in coach in.
These half-sheet pans make the perfect side-dish duo and are the perfect size for even the smallest city ovens.
Anthropologie is taking an extra 40 percent off already on-sale items, which brings this mini natural deodorant down to just $4. It’s the perfect size to keep in your purse or waist pack and have close at hand to reapply after a long run or just a sweaty subway ride.
This paisley-printed version of our favorite silk sleep mask would make a lovely bridal-shower gift for the bride who isn’t limiting herself to all white.
Unfortunately, this dress does not come with round-trip tickets to the Mediterranean, but with it’s Grecian-inspired blue-and-white print you’ll instantly feel transported even if you never leave the East Coast.
With code BESTSALE at J.Crew, you can take an additional 60 percent off already marked-down items, and we suggest stocking up on a few of these $20 camp shirts to get you through the end of summer.
These go-with-everything slides are nearly 75 percent off and still available in every size.
These Eberjey-esque pajamas are perfectly priced to gift an entire bridal party and come in sizes XXS to 3X.
Over at Amazon we spotted this mini-Keurig on sale, perfect for jazzing up a dorm room this fall.
Madewell is taking an extra 50 percent off sale items with code MAJOR, which means these fisherman sandals are just under $70.
Here, another $20 camp shirt (for her) worth stocking up on.
This sweet minidress is perfect for your next park date.
This is similar in size to our best-in-class air fryer recommended by Jennifer West and Rebecca Abbott, the writers and recipe developers behind Air Frying Foodie. Abbott says, “I don’t think I’ve come across something you can’t fit in the basket,” so you should have no problem air frying to your heart’s desire in this one.
Yesterday we spotted a great discount on an iRobot vacuum, and today we found this Shark model for even cheaper. For just $260, you can get this does-it-all robot vacuum. Not only will it clean your floors on its own, thanks to the self-cleaning brush roll it will clean itself, too.
